Table of contents

The two possible romantic interests were hardly addressed. The magical elements had promise, but again, the novel dragged. The book ends like there might be sequels, but I have no desire to read them. I read through this book because I wanted to see how it ended, but I was never strongly drawn in or intrigued by it. The characters are not particularly sympathetic or well fleshed out and they feel more like puppets on the authors stage.

The plot, as well, seems to me a rather tedious patchwork rather then a consistent unfolding drama. There are no surprises, no aha! This book has a wonderful premise of how and what curses are and the people who fight them. It also has a three musketeer type man who "recues" the heroine. Out of Time is the first fantasy novel in the Time series.

It is set in the near future within the Midwestern town of Bower, Michigan. Merle Acacia Merrigan is the acquisition librarian at the university. She had never liked her name and now everyone knows her as Emma. She has been married -- and divorced -- twice. She still relates well with her two step-children. Eleanor Merrigan is Emma's mother. She had disappeared when Emma was five. At first, Emma thought that she had died, but later Emma learned that she had fled to New York city.

Jennifer Hodden is a senior at the university. She has recently moved into the Blue House -- a student co-op -- where she met her boyfriend. Bran Mongomery is a graduate student at the university. He has recently moved from an Eastern school and in living at the Blue House. He met Jennifer there and is now her boyfriend. Matt Strabo is the official System Administrator for the university library. He knows Emma because she is the unofficial SA for the library.

She has been performing that additional duty since the computer was using punched cards. In this story, it is the first week of November. Emma is now living alone. Her Dad had passed away the previous February and her two stepchildren -- Lori and Jeff -- are living elsewhere. She arrives at her desk to find that the library director has again locked himself out of his files. After Emma helps Matt to discover the cause of the problem, she starts working on her current acquisition difficulties.

At the end of her day, Emma checks to see if any additional bodies are lying within her assigned area of the stacks her reasons are too long for this review. Toward the end of her route, Emma discovers somebody slumped over a table with blood spills on the notebooks and table top. Fortunately, the body is still alive, with only a split lip. Jennifer prefers not to explain how she got the lip and black eye, so Emma takes her out to supper and gets most of the story. Jennifer and Bran have fallen into love with not only passion, but also inevitability.

As Bran later states, Jennifer filled a hole within him. But Jennifer had poked him in the ribs and stated that he would have been dead if she had a knife. So Bran beat her to drive the demons away. Emma takes Jennifer home and puts her into the spare bedroom.

Then she starts having terrors -- panic attacks -- and dreams that seem very real. Emma tries to drive away her anxieties by work and cleans up the boxes in her basement. There she finds a box that she has never seen before that has her full name written on the outside. Inside the cardboard box are newspapers wrapped around a wooden box with a lock and key. Inside the wooden box is an envelope with a note to Emma from her mother. Below the envelope is a black bound book with onion skin papers. Below that are other objects, including two bowls, a bell, a silver dish, another book, and a tray of bottled potions.

Under that are the remains of melted candles and a candle stand. The note spooks Emma. It speaks of a wyrd and of walking through time. The black book contains passages about persistent curses and potions for effective dreaming. Emma starts to believe that her mother had been deranged. This tale leads Emma into a place outside time which she calls the Wasteland.

It starts to interfere with her sleep, for she wakes up in that place. Emma starts to hear dogs and see red masses. Then she finds that her anger can drive them away.

Emma decides that the things that are harassing her are curses. Or maybe they are just delusions. But they hurt her and she starts to find evidence of their reality.
